KANCHENJUNGA CIRCUIT TREKKING


Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek lies in  the remote area and considered to be the  most  beautiful trekking route in Nepal. It is a long trek that goes deep into the trans- Himalayan border adjoining with Sikkim ( India) and Tibet ( China). During the trek you will explore infinite variety of landscapes, ethnic cultures and panoramic views of the Himalayas. At the beginning of the trekking we walk through the low lands of terraced fields, colorful villages, yak pastures and green forests of pink barked rhododendrons towards  the alpine region. As the trail gains altitude, gorgeous views of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu & Kanchenjunga, the world’s highest mountains make this trek a most rewarding. Musk deer and blue sheep are mostly found here and also the abominable snowman YETI is believed to exist here. It is inhabited by a few scattered population and is a real wild terrain of Nepal..

 In the Kanchenjunga Circuit, you will explore both the north and south base camps. While trekking, you will encounter local Tibetan refugees, who welcome you with hospitality and smiling faces as you walk through the upper parts of Kanchanjunga region.  Kanchenjunga is graded as a challenging trek due to its remoteness and high altitude. You will find very few other trekkers on the trails. Those who opt for Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek should be physically fit enough to walk for at least 6 hours a day.

 March to May ( Spring season) and September to November (autumn season) are considered the best months to trek to Kanchenjunga Circuit. The weather during this period of  time  will be good enough to provide an mesmerizing view of the Himalayas..
